by violence and gun violence. so i think that moving forward you will continue to hear president obama make these types of broad-based arguments in terms of the policy and getting stiffer gun legislation passed. you also heard president obama saying some of the measures he is calling for deserve a vote. realistically does he expect a reinstatement of the ban on assault weapons? probably not. he will continue to call for a vote but i think today is an indication that he's going to continue to press for other things like improving mental health services, early childhood education, and alongside that continue to fight for the legislation in terms of what is realistic, probably most likely getting universal background checks. that seems to have the broadest base of support at this time, martin, but we're really getting a window into the tactic this president will take moving forward as he does try to combat gun violence. again, getting personal today. it reminded me of his state of the union address when he had that rousing finish at the end which was also quite emotional when he spoke to the v
and blocked president obama as a president. i feel like a democratic president should be able to put into the cabinet who he wants to put in that position. the simple fact is, he is the president. why should a democratic president allow people like lindsey gramm, john mccain, who ran for president -- the federalist papers speaks directly about the filibuster. hamilton's book about this. when a small minority is able to -- is able to stop the progress of the american people, please put somebody in have of them speak on the filibuster. pull some -- put somebody in and have them speak on the filibuster. host: here are some quotes about the luster -- the filibuster. an independent culpa --call from michigan. caller: there are more important issues. i think this is a slap to our presidency and an insult. host: on twitter -- being park, illinois, chris and the republican line. caller: if you look closely at what republicans are objecting to, it is one or two things. especially because mr. hagel is a republican, he looks alarmed getting attacked on those accounts. if he has an honest disagr
happened. sick stuff. and it seems to be growing in inverse proportion to obama's popularity. the better he looks the worse these characters inhofe, cruz, mccain and lindsey graham are determined to look. did you notice the smile on john boehner's face sitting up there behind the president during the state of the union? if you did, you're imagining things. so afraid of the hard hating right of republicans these days of every stripe even boehner's scared to death of looking like he might like something barack obama had so say. to do that is to risk political death in these days. let's go at it. our guests are joy reid of the grio and michael steele, former chafer of the republican national committee. both are msnbc analysts and good ones. let's take a look at this. is this delay on the hagel vote about playing for time hoping new information comes out about them? "the new york times" reports today that anti-hagel groups are right now hoping for exactly that. quote, leaders of these groups said in interviews this they expected their efforts to include more phone calls urging conservative vote

with fox news channel after the vote and pointed out that senator hagel in 2008, when barack obama was facing him in the nomination gave him cover in a sense, that he was out on this foreign trip with him sort of passively supporting his candidacy. mccain didn't go so far as to say this, but he pointed out thatten obsign iraq and that campaign, that he wasn't on our side. the other point is senator graham was right quite frank on this, we know hagel has nothing to do with benghazi, but this is the only leverage we have, this is the way the game is played. we're trying to leverage this situation to get more questions acknowledged about benghazi from the white house as the white house pointed out they already answered. cenk: lindsey graham is grandstanding because he that a primary coming up in south carolina and wants to seem tough on the president. >> senator reid made that point is this really where we're at that you need that sort of badge on your resume to fend off a tea party challenge. i raised that quote to senator graham. he said if this was a nominee from a republican presi

obama will head to chicago to speak at a south side high school. he's expected to focus on improving the middle class but also he'll likely talk about gun violence. that's because 15-year-old hadiya pendleton was shot and killed a mile from obama's chicago home, days after performing at the inaugural luncheon in washington, d.c., during inaugural week. that sparked a petition with nearly 50,000 signatures demanding the president visit chicago and outline a specific plan to prevent gun violence. joining us from chicago is the woman who helped start the coalition, kathy cohen and mike shields, president of the chicago fraternal order of police. welcome to you both. >> good morning. >> thanks for having us. >> kathy, the president made a plea for congress to vote on his gun control proposals during the state of the union. that didn't satisfy you? >> no. i mean we're really looking for the president to offer a comprehensive analysis of kind of the factors that underlie gun violence. we support the president in looking for legislation to deal with gun control, but we also want the preside

is brewing in d.c. tonight over president obama's pick to be the next defense secretary. now, as republican senators temporarily block a vote on chuck hagel's nomination, that was earlier today. delayed the vote until late february. now republicans say it's premature to close the debate over the nominee and say that before any confirmation vote will take place, they want answers from hagel and the white house about what exactly president obama was doing the night of the benghazi terror attack that killed a u.s. ambassador and three other americans. the first time a filibuster of a cabinet nominee has been used and needless to say this marks a major win for the g.o.p., and a pretty embarrassing defeat for the president. and joining me now with reaction from the american center for law and justice, jay sekulow and analyst juan williams, i don't always agree with leon panetta and i respect him and he said about the see skwquestration cuts, it going to hollow our military and devastate the military, and he chuck hagel says the budget is bloated. and missile defense, wants to disarm america of n

of the votes needed to advance the process. something president obama chalked up to partisan politics. >> there's nothing in the constitution that says that somebody should get 60 votes. there are only a handful of instances in which there's been any kind of filibuster of anybody for a cabinet position in our history. and what seems to be happening -- and this has been growing over time -- is the republican minority in the senate seem to think that the rule now is that you have to have 60 votes for everything. well, that's not the rule. it's just unfortunate that this kind of politics intrudes at a time when i'm still presiding over a war in afghanistan, and i need a secretary of defense who is coordinating with our allies to make sure that our troops are getting the kind of strategy and mission that they deserve. >> joe, senator john mccain offered a different -- and this is -- actually, i felt better after i heard this -- he offered a different rationale for the republican opposition. it's personal. it's one that dates back to the bush presidency. >> oh, okay. >> there's a lot of ill will tow
environmental issues among our top priorities. as president obama stressed in his state of the union address earlier this week, there is an undeniable trend of warmer climates and a rise in the frequency of natural disasters which cause devastation across this nation. we are headed in the wrong direction, and we need serious action to protect our planet. we can fight global warming while still growing our economy. we can do it by investing in clean renewable resources like wind and solar with equipment produced right here in the united states of america. by dealing seriously with environmental issues, we can boost our economy, decrease our reliance on foreign oil and leave a better world for our children. these should be our top priorities as members of congress, as citizens and as parents and it is time these issues receive the attention that they deserve. i yield the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from utah rise? >> mr. speaker, i rise to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentle
